Description

This amateur highly elaborate colour spy film opens with archive or commercial war material telling the story of a British agent that has been sent to collect information from a Russian science specialist Yuri Bolenkoff to trade for safe passage in the UK. Bolenkoff makes his way to the UK via Paris-Orly airport to meet the British agent at Gatwick Airport. Unfortunately Bolenkoff has a killer and former KGB colleague Atoli Komenko after him, to stop the information getting into British hands. The British agent collects Bolenkoff and his French bodyguard, before Komenko can get to him. Unfortunately a second retired British agent Tony Chesters, is also after Bolenkoff and Komenko to seek revenge for being shot in Berlin and ending his career. On arrival at the airport, the good British agent collects Bollenkoff and his bodyguard, but is followed by Komenko on their return from the airport. A chase ensues on foot through rural countryside where a gun and fist fight break out in a field. Seizing his opportunity from across the field, Chesters shoots all three men dead, the French bodyguard tries to get away but he too is shot and killed. Tony Chesters gets his revenge making a quick getaway in his car before the police arrive.

This film won the Greenyer Sound Trophy, Albany Competition in 1978.
